Objectives of ElecHydro

ElecHydro contributes to the global energy transition. We do this with a new generation of innovative electrolysers based on the Anion Exchange Membrane technology (AEM). Our goal is to develop highly efficient, fully adjustable and sustainable electrolysis systems with which green hydrogen can be produced at the lowest possible cost.

This competitive proposition is achieved through the application of innovative technologies that lead to a better connection to sustainable energy sources and a higher efficiency. With the upscaling of the production of the electrolyser stacks to series and mass production, further price reductions are realized. This makes it economically feasible to produce and apply  green hydrogen on a large scale in order to make the transition to clean and sustainable energy possible.

Accelerating the energy transition

The AEM electrolysis technology offers great advantages over other hydrogen technologies. These advantages relate to efficiency, controllability and responsiveness. In addition, AEM technology places lower demands on the water used, requires little to no rare metals and makes the system a lot more sustainable. Choice of materials and design also make our systems easily recyclable.

The advantages of AEM technology are obvious. At the same time, AEM technology is still in full development. By further developing the distinctive features of this technique, especially in the field of efficiency and controllability of the system, we offer a unique product that enables an acceleration of the energy transition with green hydrogen.

ElecHydro supplies and develops electrolysis systems based on AEM technology with the following Unique Selling Points:

  1. Controllability of the system from 0% to 100% This makes the system ideally suited to combine with intermittent sources such as solar and wind energy.
  2. Start-up speed of the system within one minute This is also important for the combination with intermittent sources such as solar and wind energy.
  3. Comparable or higher efficiency than comparable technologies This at both stack and system level (> 80% system efficiency)
  4. Low cost and fully recyclable (cradle to cradle).  We do this by making little or no use of precious metals such as iridium and platinum, a simpler stack design, and a less complex Balance of Plant (BoP).
